"This is Broadway, people come from all over the planet to see the best theater actors in the world. You expect a professional theater experience from an actor who is prepared, can remember his lines, and actually sing. I experienced none of this during my performance the other day with Hedwig. I believe people are giving him a pass because he's beautiful and the first African-American to do this role on Broadway. If NPH did this peopl

Betsy will be in the Public Theatre's First Daughter Suite October 6-November 15. Will someone take over standby entirely, or just cover for Betsy's absence?

Wow, she brings a totally different energy to this song. Maybe a bit more masculine or something? Whatever it is, I think it totally works. For those who have seen her, what do they do with her hair? Does she wear a short wig, or goes as is? Looks like the show is in good hands when understudies/swings go on.

i think his bailing early is ridiculous and childish. and i think the fact that no news sources have picked this up means people are afraid of alienating NPH. this guy made a commitment. okay, maybe the show is not great, but he signed a contract and his name alone certainly has some kind of box office draw. this is his job. this is what he signed on for. 8 shows a week. you don't see tyne daly or sierra boggess, arguably way bigger names, pulling this crap. this makes him look like an entitl

Selfishly, as a huge Sara B fan, I hope there's some kind of recording of Sara singing the entire score.
edited to add; can we please change subject to reflect the actual spelling of Sara's name? Thanks!

Was IMPRESSIONISM a flop, with Jeremy Irons and Joan Allen? If so, that.
I loved every minute.

I felt nothing for Kuhn's performance at the Public and even less on Broadway, though I will admit she absolutely brings the house down with "Days and Days." However, to me, the song feels unearned. I think Helen is a mostly background character, not given her proper due throughout the show to be given such a big, show-stopping number. For the record, this is a slight against the way the character is presented, not Kuhn, who does well with the material she's given. Do I think it deserves a To

How come you can only use a voucher code once? Like I tried to book a second set of tickets and it says only available for first-time users. Is that a new thing?

why would it be a lock to transfer if it can't even fill a small theatre?

The whole night was lovely. Highlights include all things Annaleigh Ashford (she sang Land of Lola from Kinky accompanied by the angels and Slide Some Oil to Me from the Wiz as her high school self pleading her school to mount the show), Betsy Wolfe's Let It Sing and Joshua Henry's Natural Woman. LB and Jessie Mueller also dueted Agony.

I saw this last night. I find that there is always one short that I don't care for, and this time around it was the first one - about the two friends and the tv. However, after that, I thought the rest was highly enjoyable. I tended to love the crazier more out there ones - especially the dead mother and the dopplegang(l)er ones. I don't know if Carson Elrod is just a particularly good actor, or just gets David Ives rhythm (or both) but he continues to be a highlight for me.

saw this show tonight. he certainly is a trooper. it was my first exposure to the show, and i'm not sure what was improvised or not, but he put on a heck of a show. the improvs with "crate" worked and i didn't mind whatever restaging was done. he never even grimaced, he plowed through with such force, but by the end, he was physically lifting his leg by the brace to move it around. must've hurt like hell. in any case, i am so grateful i saw him.

I am so sorry if this has been asked before, but how is the Belasco's visibility from further back? If I were to grab a mezz or balcony ticket, would the sightlines be impacted/would the show be less impactful? Thanks so much!
